Up until the age of 18 I didn’t get to travel a lot. During those days I did not have permission to travel solo, every trip was dependent on the elders of the family. My father was not an ardent traveler so we only made trips for family functions, add to it the fact that 60% of my family stayed in our vicinity, we rarely made long trips. I always prayed for a family function in one of cousins house because she lived in Delhi and it was the farthest we could travel. Once a year we would go to … Read more
I am not a movie buff. I am more into books and until recently I considered movies to be a waste of time. And my simple criteria for a movie was – it should make me smile/laugh, teach me a lesson or both! So ever since I moved out of the phase of my life where remote control was controlled by others, I never watched anything unless it was a comedy, romantic comedy or animated movie. Forced by some health issues and the resulting alone time, I started watching movies out of my genre recently and felt that I had … Read more
It’s been a long time since I touched this blog and it feels good to be back. I always love reading and sharing Inspirational Quotes because…well, they are inspiration…err and they inspire! I did lose my motivation to blog but I am back stronger, wiser and happier. Life is not any easier than it has been until now but I am thankful for that too. I would never have known how strong I am if it was not for the challenges I have faced. Some have been physical and some emotional. Physical challenges can be difficult to face especially when … Read more
Of course we all complain about how the streets and neighbourhoods are clean abroad. But the question is, how does it happen? Simple, people follow rules and throw garbage in dedicated bins. I have lived abroad and remember keeping 4 different trash cans. One for the recyclable stuff, one for biodegradable (food waste etc.) and one for plastic, one for metals. How many do we have in India? One. We stuff garbage bags and throw them wherever we see a few accumulated litter, and it becomes our “dedicated litter spot”.

Hi everyone, I am back after a long break of 2 months and now I am blogging right from my home country India. I am finally settled in my home in Bangalore and have a reliable internet connection. Anyway. I was contacted by India Circus team a few weeks ago for a website and product review. I browsed through their website and was drawn to their one-of-a-kind, funky, traditional and yet modern collections of lifestyle products. So I decided to accept the offer to review the India Circus website.

I am excited for the month of May but I am also exhausted after a month of blogging for the A to Z Challenge. I did succeed in completing the challenge and I know I tried hard but I am also aware that I was not able to give my 100%. I will do an in-depth post on my April A to Z challenge. So anyway. Since I feel like skipping a few days of blogging, I think reading some motivational sayings might cheer me up and make me carry on!
When life knocks you down, try to land on … Read more
Welcome to the final post of the April A to Z Blogging Challenge. This is the second month-long blogging event that I have completed successfully but what makes this more special is that this time I participated with both of my blogs. And I am so proud to admit that I survived the challenge on both fronts. Hurray!
To write the Z post, I had a different subject in mind but then I scratched that to share a tiny little story about my (not technically) first blog.
Zenith: It is the point in the sky or celestial sphere directly above … Read more
YouTube has not been around for a decade in my life but I now cannot imagine my life without it! I have found “friends”, recipes, makeup tips, fun and motivation on this platform. Of course the concept of haters is not alien to me but I tend to focus on the positives. If it had not been for YouTube, I might never have made perfect Samosas without the tips from Tarla Dalal, I would never have known LORAC Pro palette if my favorite YouTuber had not raved about it etc. I have been watching YT videos for a little over … Read more
Kudos to me for coming up this ultra original idea of writing a post on this theme for the letter X for my entry to the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Anyhow, the main reason I wanted to write about X-factor is that I feel I always highlight my shortcoming more than mentioning things I do well. I have recently concluded that I do not appreciate myself enough! So here I am discussing my X-factor(s)!
I do not have a boastful bone in my body so I hope it does not seem like that once you finish reading this post. … Read more
Welcome to Day 26 of the April A to Z Blogging Challenge, today is the day of the letter W and I am going to share my Wishlist with you. I have an eye infection and I spent a lot of time on my other blog so I am going to keep this short. All of these countries/places vary in range from from shopping destinations, beach vacations to historical places. I want to see it all. I may not get to travel the world but I will make it a point to visit these 10 places in my life!
New … Read more
